LEATHER HEAD™ footballs are made in the modern style, but they are made to be used by normal humans, not the behemoths of the NFL.
I designed them to be slightly smaller than an official league ball. LEATHER HEAD™ footballs are intended for enjoyment by sports lovers of all sizes.

I make LEMON BALL™ baseballs and LEATHER HEAD™ footballs for enthusiasts throughout the United States and the World. They are available online through Etsy and they are featured at several retail shops including the Baseball Hall of Fame's gift shop.
